More than 400 tuarts were planted at Booyeembara Park in Fremantle as part of the High Street Upgrade tree planting program. 

For every tuart tree removed, more than 200 will be planted in its place.

Community volunteers joined Main Roads, local Members of Parliament, the Mayor of Fremantle and Trillion Trees on Saturday 18 July to plant the tuarts and thousands of understorey species. 

This localised program complements the initial phase of the initiative, which has seen 4000 new tuarts planted in Whiteman Park, Caversham.
